July 24-August 17: The Candy Store

A colorful exhibit is transforming VisArts at Rockville into a sweet shop. In The Candy Store, artist Jackie Hoysted decorates the walls with vibrant, rectangular paintings coated in a sugary layer of bubbling wax and arranges circular encaustic pieces to resemble a “pick ‘n’ mix” station. The candy-colored wood panels are infused with sweet-smelling oils that fill the gallery space with bubblegum, sweet apple and tutti frutti aromas. You can see and smell the artwork through August 17.

July 24-August 16: The Campsite Rule

The Washington Rogues present Alexandra Petri’s new comedy The Campsite Rule at Anacostia Playhouse through August 16. When Susan visits her alma mater, the career woman crosses paths with a charming, yet inexperienced freshman named Lincoln. Despite their significant age difference, what starts out as a one-night stand quickly grows into an extra credit opportunity, as Susan resolves to educate her young paramour in the ways of sex and romance.
